The Best Yacht Charters You Can Book Around the World

Whether you’re looking for seven decks of entertainment, a family-friendly trip, or a diving-focused Caribbean voyage, you’ll find it here.

top yacht charter companies

There are few experiences as luxurious and awe-inspiring as a yacht charter . You can explore the world at your leisure, spend quality time with friends and family in an intimate setting, and the service is second to none. We've rounded up the most exceptional new yacht charters to book around the world. They're sure to inspire your next voyage, whether you want to relax along the Amalfi Coast or explore remote corners of the globe.

In the yachting world, Loon is known for an exceptional array of water toys — perhaps the best in her class. There's a FunAir inflatable slide that goes from the third deck straight into the ocean, an in-water pool, and a luxurious 43-foot Everglades tender. You can hop on paddleboards, sea kayaks, Waverunners, or a Seabob to explore nearby islands and coves.

The adventurous can try kite surfing or Lift e-Foil surfboards, which seems effortless when you watch the crew fly past, but is actually quite challenging. Loon is also a scuba diver's dream. The crew has several master divers and dive instructors who can take you out each morning, and they have all of the equipment you need onboard. They can also certify new divers during the trip.

The 180-foot yacht has a staggering 1,100 gross tons of living space, elegant design, and an amiable and attentive crew. Loon has two master staterooms, including a unique one on the upper deck. It has wraparound windows that offer unparalleled views of the surroundings. There are two salons, including one with recliners and a projector for movie night, plenty of spaces for dining alfresco, and an oversized infinity-edge Jacuzzi with a wet bar nearby. Fancy a workout? Loon has a treadmill, exercise bike, rowing machine, and free weights in the beach club. You'll be hard-pressed to find better workout views than this.

The crew is absolutely lovely and specializes in setting up unique experiences. You might have a pizza night on board, a barbecue on a private beach, or sundowners at the Instagram-famous Loon Bar. The crew will even take you to a picture-perfect sandbar and serve you drinks as you loll in the warm water.

Loon is available for charter from IYC in the Bahamas, Caribbean, and Bermuda during the winter months and in the Mediterranean in the summer months. Rates begin at $325,000 a week plus expenses.

Nansen Explorer

For the ultimate Antarctica adventure, you can't beat a voyage aboard Nansen Explorer . This former research vessel has all of the technical features needed to safely explore one of the world's most remote and dramatic landscapes and, thanks to a retrofit in 2021, an ultra-luxe interior design that wouldn't look out of place in St. Tropez. For exploration, Nansen Explorer has an Ice-1A classed 236-foot hull and an ice-experienced captain and bridge team, which means she can go deeper into the ice than other polar-classed superyachts. There's a heli-deck with onboard fueling capabilities, so you can see the vast landscape from the sky, or even go heli-skiing. There are plenty of toys that allow you to get up close and personal with wildlife and nature, including kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, dive equipment, and Zodiacs.

The interiors are so stylish, modern, and well-appointed that you'll forget you're in the middle of Antarctica rather than at a swanky hotel. The ship originally accommodated 60 passengers, but now it holds just 12 guests in seven cabins, including an owner's suite and a VIP suite. Each cabin has large windows that showcase the stunning vistas outside the ship. The sumptuous Scandanavian-inspired decor features shades of grey and white, which reflect the surrounding environment. There's a cozy lounge with a bar and a fireplace, perfect for warming up after an excursion to see penguins or whales.

Nansen Explorer is available for charter from Plan South America in Antarctica. Rates begin at $340,000 a week and are all-inclusive.

Yachting in French Polynesia is always a blissful experience, but Dardanella takes relaxation to the next level with bespoke, wellness-focused charters planned by onboard wellbeing facilitator Ayumi Gallagher. The wellness experience is all-encompassing, including fresh, detoxifying food, mindfulness workshops, yoga sessions, Pilates, meditation, and massages alongside traditional yacht activities, like diving, surfing, and tender safaris exploring the pristine waters and nature of French Polynesia. The captain is also a qualified marine biologist and ecologist, so he's the perfect person to show you this unique environment. There are two dive instructors, 12 sets of dive gear, a Nitrox dive compressor, and underwater photography equipment, so you can capture the beauty underwater, too. As an expedition yacht, Dardanella is well-suited for exploring remote destinations. The 121-foot yacht was refit in 2018 and has five luxurious cabins.

Dardanella is available for charter from 37south in French Polynesia. Rates begin at $100,000 a week plus expenses.

With seven decks, there's something for everyone aboard Wheels . This massive yet elegant yacht measures 249 feet, weighs almost 2,000 gross tons, and has lots of standout amenities including a spacious cinema for eight guests, a huge aquarium, massage room with a dedicated onboard masseuse, air-conditioned gym, and the main salon converts to a disco complete with lights and a smoke machine for those late-night dance parties. The split-level master suite has panoramic views, a study, and plenty of space, and there are four spacious guest suites on the main deck. Outside, there are plenty of relaxation areas, including sunpads, a hot tub, several dining areas and bars, and an enviable water sports area with two Jet Skis, four wave runners, three seabobs, a luxurious tender, and plenty more toys. The crew is very active and can teach you to wakeboard, kitesurf, sail the new Hobie cat catamaran, or scuba dive. They can also lead yoga and fitness classes.

Wheels is available for charter from Fraser Yachts in the Caribbean. Rates begin at $680,000 a week plus expenses.

It's not uncommon for yacht charterers to "upgrade" their yachts year after year, chasing newer and bigger boats, which is makes Big Sky 's number of repeat bookings even more impressive. The 157-foot yacht has been a charter favorite since 2010, and she recently underwent a refit leaving her in immaculate condition. Big Sky can accommodate 10 guests in five staterooms, including a full-beam master that spans the width of the yacht, and there's plenty of room onboard to relax, including the main salon with large windows and a state-of-the-art TV system. The sky lounge is perfect for entertaining — it has an onyx bar and sliding windows that make you feel as if you are outside. Of course, if you do want to relax outdoors, there are three teak decks with space for dining and a large sundeck with a Jacuzzi, sun pads, couches, and a bar.

Big Sky is available for charter from Northrop & Johnson in the Bahamas. Rates begin at $180,000 a week plus expenses.

This glamorous new superyacht caused quite a stir when she debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2021. It's rare for a brand-new superyacht of this size to be available immediately for charter, so book your trip on Tatiana early. This 263-foot yacht can accommodate up to 12 guests, who are guaranteed impeccable service from the 20 crew members. She has a great selection of water accoutrements and a stunning design with a large amount of interior space, including a deck dedicated to the owner's suite. There are also two VIP staterooms, four double cabins, and a twin cabin. While away any rainy days in the movie room or shooting some pool. Tatiana also has a fabulous beach club with a large bathing platform, bar, and outdoor lounge.

Tatiana is available for charter from IYC in the Bahamas, Caribbean, and Bermuda during the winter months and in the Mediterranean in the summer months. Rates begin at €775,000 a week plus expenses.

Nour El Nil Meroe

Step back in time aboard Nour El Nil Meroe , a traditionally inspired Egyptian yacht full of modern amenities and luxurious design. Meroe is available for charter through Black Tomato, a top luxury travel company known for its expertly curated trips with exclusive experiences and a focus on local culture. Meroe is styled like a classic dahabiya boat, with authentic decor featuring whitewashed walls and linens alongside Parisian decor details. The VIP cabins have floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Nile — we can't think of a more fabulous way to have breakfast in bed — while the other cabins have large windows. The shaded roof terrace has plenty of spots for lounging and dining alfresco, and there's a cheery indoor salon with red-and-white striped decor and cozy couches. On your charter, you'll slowly sail down the Nile River from Luxor to Aswan. You can charter just the yacht voyage or book the Ultimate Egypt trip , which includes adventures on land as well as the yacht charter (think: private tours of the pyramids, exploring temples, or taking a jeep safari around Siwa).

El Nil and the Ultimate Egypt trip can be booked through Black Tomato . Rates begin at $5,800 a person.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection

One of 2022's most anticipated travel launches is the new The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection . While this is technically a small-ship cruise, every element has been designed to make you feel as if you are aboard a superyacht. The fleet will ultimately have three custom-built yachts, each with 149 suites. However, in 2022, the collection will launch with their first luxury vessel: Evrima . The suites all have private terraces, which isn't something you can expect aboard even the largest superyacht. And of course, the amenities are incredible. It has a beautiful spa, stunning marina terrace (set up like a yacht beach club), an infinity-edge pool, a large gym, and plenty of entertainment. The dining options are seemingly endless, including the main restaurant, the Evrima Room, S.E.A., which features a menu by acclaimed chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, Talaat Nam, a Southeast Asian spot, and several casual options.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection's inaugural voyage is set for May 2022 and pricing is dependent on the itinerary. Learn more about the trips here .

TOP 10 Yacht Charter Companies to Consider for Your Trip

top yacht charter companies

Private jet charters offer convenience, comfort, privacy, personal service, bespoke facilities, and luxury. And, of course, a huge choice of destinations and departure points, and an itinerary to suit you. 

The only downside? They can’t travel on water. 

Enjoy the Private Jet Lifestyle Without Taking Off

Super yacht companies are to cruising what private jet companies are to flying. You will have a much wider choice of destinations when choosing yacht companies over cruise lines, including numerous smaller ports where huge cruise ships can’t dock.

Cruise companies offer a very limited selection of departure dates. Often, you’ll need to compromise on your holiday length, ship, or destinations to travel on your desired dates—or vice versa. Book a charter with the best yacht companies, though, and you can create your own itinerary. 

The Best Way to Do Business on Water

Yacht charter companies don’t just cater for family holidays or romantic breaks! Today, many yachts are equipped with all the technological amenities you need to do business while enjoying all the comfort and convenience of your surroundings. Yachts and cruises can be the perfect environment for holding meetings and entertaining clients in style—just like private jets. 

But should you charter your vessels from luxury yacht companies, or think about buying a yacht of your own? And if you decide to charter, what are the best yacht charter companies to trust with your trip? Here’s our lowdown.

Luxury Yachts: Charter or Buy?

A yacht is a great status symbol, and ownership theoretically means you’re free to travel when and where you choose. However, yachts don’t make the best investments unless you’re using them very regularly (or hiring them out when you’re not). They’re costly to operate, insure, maintain, and store/berth, and their value can depreciate quickly. You’ll also have to source a quality crew at short notice (not easy) or keep them on retainer (not cheap).

Chartering yachts from top-end yacht companies, however, gives you the benefits of yacht-owning without the cost and responsibility. You can still enjoy a bespoke trip, luxurious surroundings, and an experienced crew, but the experience will be stress-free. And you’ll only pay while you’re chartering.

If you want to try yacht chartering, we’ve selected our ten best yacht companies for the quality and choice they offer.

The Best Yacht Chartering Companies

The top yacht companies with the Paramount Business Jets seal of approval are:

Northrop & Johnson

Founded in 1949 to cater to the yachtsmen of Long Island Sound, Northrop & Johnson has long since expanded beyond New York, with branches in Europe and throughout the US. 

The 295ft Nero oozes 1920s glamour. Its master suite has a lounge, study, and ensuite bathroom. There are six further staterooms, a host of water sports equipment and craft, and a spa, pool, jacuzzi, masseuse, beautician, and personal trainer.

The Mediterranean-themed Bang! is only 114ft. However, there’s still space for a large master suite, four double cabins, a jacuzzi, and an upper salon boasting a full bar, office space, and lounge area. 

The Moorings

The Moorings company was founded in the British Virgin Islands in 1969 by Charlie Cary, a Navy veteran and sailing enthusiast. With bases across the world, it’s a prize-winning company well-known for charitable and environmental endeavors.

The 46ft Moorings 4600 catamaran has three ensuite cabins and sleeping accommodations for the all-important captain and gourmet chef! The cross deck is an ideal launchpad for water sports, the luxurious main cabin has a full entertainment center, and solar panels increase battery life.

Fancy taking charge of your yacht yourself? Consider the Pegasus—a Fountaine Pajot MY 40 power cat . She has a large master suite, two further double cabins, and an extensive inventory of cooking appliances.

Burgess Yachts

Founded in 1975 by renowned solo ocean racer Nigel Burgess, Burgess Yachts now has branches in Asia, Australasia, Europe, and the US. It specializes in yachts of over 100ft.

The Faith , at 316ft, is currently the longest yacht the company offers. It houses a cinema, gym, wellness center, glass-bottomed pool, games deck, wine cellar, and water sports equipment galore. There are two suites, four cabins, and a crew that includes three chefs.

The sleek 196ft Slipstream offers a master suite, VIP cabin, three standard cabins, and a cinema, plus a sheltered jacuzzi and alfresco dining area.

Ritzy Charters

Ritzy Charters , founded in 2012, is based in North Bay Village, Florida. The company offers over 1,300 yachts for charter across the world, from the chilly expanses of the Arctic to the warm climes of the Caribbean.

The 130ft Endless Summer has a master suite, three VIP suites, and two twin staterooms. It offers a dinghy, tender, and deck jacuzzi, inside and outside bars, and a range of water sports equipment.

The more petite Madrigal V Yacht Charter Catamaran , although just 45ft long, has three ensuite queen-size cabins. With a deck shower, snorkel gear, and an underwater camera and video, it’s the perfect base for underwater exploration.

Adrian Gradinaru co-founded Sailo in 2014 with three business-and-tech-savvy friends, after struggling to hire a boat and competent captain himself. Sailo connects boat owners, captains, charter companies, and renters, offering 30,000+ boats in over 500 locations. 

The 60ft Express Cruiser is ideal for smaller meetings or parties. Guests can enjoy fantastic sound systems, use Bluetooth, internet, and satellite TV facilities, and sleep in the two staterooms, each with a full bath.

For larger gatherings and parties, the cabin-less 120ft Custom Yacht accommodates 140 guests. It offers a range of entertainment and dining options to create your perfect event.

Boatbookings

Boatbookings was founded in 2005 to connect yacht charter experts worldwide via technology, providing a superior yacht chartering experience. The company’s strength is its local representatives with on-the-ground knowledge of the locations and the 12,000+ boats the company offers. 

The 78ft Zia Canaia is one of the company’s most popular boats. With a highly experienced crew, the boat has two twin and two double cabins, a spacious and luxurious lounge, a tender, and water sports equipment.

If you want to travel under sail instead, opt for the Orion crewed catamaran, with four ensuite double cabins, a jacuzzi, a large saloon and a range of fishing and water sports equipment.

My Rent Boat

My Rent Boat was founded in 2019 in the UK, aiming to provide a digital platform for chartering boats simply and affordably. It also offers individual cabin rentals.

One of the company’s cheapest sailing boats to charter is the neat, compact Orestis , which can accommodate six guests in three cabins. 

At the other end of the scale, the Ohana has 18 cabins sleeping 38 people, luxurious and spacious socializing and dining spaces, an array of water sports equipment, and an eight-person crew.

SNS Yacht Charter

SNS Yacht Charter was founded in 2020 by CEO Stephanie Skinner to offer bespoke and unique yachting holidays. The small, boutique, Mallorca-based company focuses on personal service rather than tech-driven bookings.

The 236ft Serenity is the company’s longest yacht, with 14 cabins. There’s an extensive master suite, gym, sauna, beauty room, bar, cinema, sundeck, and pool, along with a multitude of water toys.

The smallest yacht is the 55ft Babalu . However, minimalist décor and ergonomic design mean it still offers five double ensuite cabins, ample dining, socializing and sunbathing areas, and a variety of water toys.

Dream Yacht Charter

Dream Yacht Charter was founded by Loic Bonnet in 2000 with the aim of making sailing accessible to all. Beginning in Seychelles with just six boats, the company now offers over 1,000 yachts in more than 60 locations worldwide.

The company offers novel eco-friendly Aqualodges , ideal for relaxing on the water. These two-bedroom ‘floating villas’ are moored self-catering units with a glass floor for underwater views and a dinghy for trips to the shore.

The Dream 60 is a crewed catamaran with six stylish ensuite cabins and bright, spacious areas for indoor and outdoor dining and socializing.

Y.CO was founded in 2004 by Charlie Birkett and Gary Wright. Originally a Yacht Management company, it’s now one of the world’s leading full-service yacht companies, with offices in Monaco, London, and Fort Lauderdale.

The eye-catching, award-winning Maltese Falcon has a naval architectural design. This 289ft carbon fiber DynaRig has a decadent full-beam owner’s suite, a VIP suite, and four double staterooms. There’s also a gym and sauna with staff to help you make the most of them.

The 167ft Helios 2 has five cabins including a master suite, plus a jacuzzi and immaculate spacious rooms and spaces, inside and out, for dining and relaxing.

Maximize Your Comfort: Pair Your Yacht with a Private Jet

As you can see, if you want a bespoke itinerary that oozes luxury, comfort, and convenience, private jets and luxury yachts are a match made in heaven! A private jet charter is an ideal way to meet your yacht or bring you home, as it can land at a multitude of smaller airports not served by airlines. It will also ensure your trip maintains that relaxed, sumptuous vibe. You could also book a private jet charter to extend your holiday, taking you somewhere inland for a few days on solid ground.

Halcon del Mar by Red Savannah Private Cruise

While much of the cruise industry halted operations in the last year , it didn't mean that all sailings stopped. For families or pandemic-era bubble groups who wanted a sunny getaway on the water, a trend emerged: renting out entire yachts , complete with crew, for a new kind of custom sailing.

Exploring destinations around the world on a private yacht with your kids, and maybe another family or two, is both a luxurious and practical way to travel these days. The sea turns into your personal playground, and your captain will steer you to islets and beaches away from the crowds. On board, you can spend time together in a pleasant, contained environment—plus, no one has to cook. Bring on the movies and board games!

Here are our favorite family-friendly yachts available for private charter around the world.

The leading yacht charter companies

Boatbookings

Yacht charter companies offer a diverse array of seafaring vessels for your leisurely needs; from small, intimate sailboats to sprawling, luxurious mega yachts.

You can charter a motor yacht for a swift, contemporary journey or a classic sailing yacht for a more tranquil, wind-guided voyage.

Catamarans and gulets are also on offer, providing a more stable and spacious option for larger groups or family outings.

For the ultimate in luxury, some companies offer superyachts and mega yachts, replete with professional crews, gourmet catering, and high-end amenities; these yachts provide a truly opulent, bespoke experience on the water.

Each type of yacht has its own unique benefits and is tailored to different kinds of vacations – from adrenaline-fueled adventure trips to relaxed, sun-soaked getaways.

When comparing options, consider factors such as the size of your party, your preferred sailing experience, the level of luxury you desire, and, of course, your budget.

Remember, the world of yacht chartering is as vast as the ocean itself, offering endless possibilities for your perfect maritime excursion.

Yacht charter companies offer a luxurious escape on the water; however, there are a few pivotal factors to mull over when deciding which company to entrust with your maritime adventure.

Initially, consider the range and quality of their yacht fleet; does it offer variety in size, style, and age of vessels? An esteemed company should provide a well-maintained fleet, featuring both modern and classic yachts to cater to diverse taste.

Moreover, the company's reputation for customer service is crucial; read reviews and seek recommendations to gauge their credibility. Are their staff experienced, certified, and knowledgeable about the yachting industry?

Additionally, ponder over the destinations they cover. Do they offer the maritime route you covet, or the exotic locales you long to explore?

Considering these factors while comparing yacht charter companies will navigate you towards an informed decision, ensuring your yacht charter experience is an unrivaled one, brimming with luxury, comfort, and unforgettable memories.

Engaging the services of yacht charter companies can be a voyage of opulence; however, navigating through the sea of pricing structures can be a tad challenging.

To compare prices between different yacht charter companies, you'll want to engage in a bit of research; you should examine their websites, review their offers, and scrutinize their pricing details.

Keep in mind, prices are often influenced by factors such as type and size of the yacht, duration of charter, time of year, and included amenities; such as crew, meals, and other onboard services.

Taking a step further, it would be prudent to read reviews from reliable third-party sites; these often provide real customer feedback and can shed light on hidden costs or value for money.

Consider also contacting the companies directly for a quote; this allows for negotiation and clarification on what exactly is included in the price.

When comparing, remember to evaluate on a like-for-like basis, as the lowest price may not necessarily mean the best value; luxury, quality of service, and safety measures are all integral parts of the yacht charter experience.

With a thorough understanding of the space, you'll be equipped to make an informed decision.

Yacht charter companies, in essence, provide a comprehensive portfolio of services; all designed to elevate the cruising experience to unparalleled heights.

The charter fee, undoubtedly, forms the core of this marine adventure, encompassing a range of benefits. Predominantly, the charter fee covers the exclusive use of the yacht for a specified period, alongside a professional crew to navigate the vessel. Additionally, this fee often includes all necessary maintenance and operational costs, such as fuel, docking fees, and insurance.

However, the breadth of services offered by yacht charter companies can extend beyond these fundamental inclusions; hence, a discerning eye is necessary when comparing options. Many companies, in a bid to distinguish themselves, offer supplementary amenities such as on-board meals prepared by gourmet chefs, water sports equipment, and even bespoke itineraries. Therefore, while the charter fee generally covers the basic necessities for a luxurious sea voyage, the specifics can vary, creating a captivating panorama of choices within the yacht charter industry.

As a general rule of thumb, it's advisable to book a yacht charter around six to 12 months in advance; especially if you're planning to set sail during peak season, or if you have a specific yacht or destination in mind.

This gives you the best chance of securing your preferred vessel and itinerary, not to mention the pick of the best cabins.

However, don't be disheartened if you're making more spontaneous plans; many charter companies can accommodate last-minute bookings, though your choices may be somewhat limited.

Keep in mind, luxury yacht charters are high in demand, and availability dwindles precipitously as the departure date approaches.

Thus, early booking is not just an option; it's a strategic move to ensure a smooth, tailor-made yachting experience.

Yacht charter companies usually offer a diverse range of charter durations to cater to a wide variety of client preferences and needs; flexibility, after all, is the spice of a sumptuous yacht charter experience.

The typical charter duration, however, tends to hover around a week; seven days of sailing bliss is the industry norm. This timeframe offers a perfect balance; long enough to truly unwind and explore some idyllic destinations, yet not so extensive that it becomes burdensome for those with tight schedules.

On the other hand, savvy sailors seeking a quick maritime getaway often opt for a weekend charter, while the more adventurous sea-lovers may embark on a multi-week, or even a month-long charter.

As you navigate the sea of yacht charter companies, bear in mind that the duration of the charter is a flexible aspect; focus more on the company's reputation, the yacht's condition, and the included services to ensure your charter experience is smooth sailing.

Indeed, yacht charter companies often cater to an array of special occasions; weddings and corporate events certainly make the list. These companies provide a unique, luxurious setting that transforms your event into a memorable experience. Onboard, guests can relish breathtaking ocean views, exquisite dining, and top-notch service. Many charter companies offer customizable packages, allowing you to tailor the event to your specific needs; a flexibility that positions them as an attractive option for those seeking an unforgettable event backdrop.

When comparing yacht charter companies, consider factors such as the size and style of the yacht, the amenities offered, and the ability to customize your event. Some companies may even provide event planning services, making the organization of your function smoother. Though costs can vary, the exclusivity and sophistication provided by a yacht event are often deemed worthwhile; a sentiment echoed in numerous reviews. Remember, the best yacht charter company is one that aligns with your budget, event needs, and personal preferences.

Chartering a yacht typically necessitates specific qualifications and licenses; however, the exact requirements can vary significantly depending on the charter company and the location.

For bareboat charters, where you captain the yacht yourself, you're generally required to possess a maritime license or demonstrate equivalent experience; a resume detailing your boating history often suffices. Some countries, such as Greece and Croatia, mandate an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

On the other hand, crewed charters, where a professional crew handles navigation and operation, don't usually require the charterer to have any specific qualifications or licenses; you simply enjoy the luxury experience.

The yacht charter industry is diverse and multifaceted, so it's crucial to research and comprehend the specific requirements before embarking on your marine adventure. Comparing and reviewing different charter companies can provide invaluable insights to help you navigate this unique terrain.

Selecting a reliable and reputable yacht charter company demands an investment of time and due diligence; a blend of meticulous online research and candid client testimonials.

Start by exploring online reviews and ratings; they're an invaluable yardstick of customer satisfaction. Look for companies with a strong online presence, as this often correlates with professionalism and reliability.

A reputable company will have a user-friendly website filled with essential information, including the range of yachts available, charter destinations, pricing details, and their safety protocols.

Moreover, a trustworthy yacht charter company will not shy away from showcasing their credentials; proof of licensing, insurance, and membership of professional boating associations are all indicators of a credible operation.

Also, consider their level of customer service; prompt responses, willingness to answer queries, and flexibility in accommodating specific requests can speak volumes about their commitment to client satisfaction.

Lastly, seek recommendations from seasoned sailors or yacht enthusiasts; their hands-on experiences might provide insights that are not readily available online.

Remember, the key to a memorable yacht charter experience lies in choosing a company that combines quality, safety, and customer-friendly service.

Yacht charter companies typically offer, or indeed necessitate, a variety of insurance coverages to safeguard your seafaring experience; these typically include liability insurance, hull insurance, and insurance against personal accidents.

Liability insurance, an essential coverage, protects you against any potential claims arising from physical harm or property damage caused to third parties.

Hull insurance, on the other hand, covers potential damage to the yacht itself; an invaluable safeguard against the unpredictable whims of the ocean.

Personal accident insurance, while often optional, is highly recommended, providing coverage for any personal injuries sustained during your voyage.

However, it's critical to remember that the specific insurance provided or required can vary significantly between charter companies; so, a detailed comparison is crucial in making an informed decision.

Some companies may include comprehensive insurance within their charter package, while others might necessitate separate policies.

Therefore, always scrutinize the terms and conditions carefully, and consider seeking independent advice, to ensure you are adequately protected for your seafaring adventure.

This nuanced understanding of insurance in the yacht charter space will be invaluable in navigating your options.

When chartering a yacht, it's prudent to be aware of potential additional costs that might not be included in the base charter fee; these could subtly inflate the overall cost of your aquatic adventure.

Commonly, a charter fee covers only the yacht and its onboard crew, leaving a plethora of other expenses to be handled separately. These can include, but are not limited to, Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) which covers fuel, food, beverages, and dockage fees; insurance for potential damages; crew gratuities; and sometimes even local taxes.

In the same vein, some yacht charter companies may offer an all-inclusive package, which might seem rather pricey at first glance; however, it often encapsulates many of these additional costs providing a more comprehensive service. Therefore, when comparing options, it's vital to not just compare the base charter fees, but also to scrutinize what each package includes. This will, undoubtedly, aid you in making a more informed decision when exploring the vast and luxurious world of yacht chartering.

Yacht charter companies typically offer a seamless and straightforward booking and payment procedure; a process that's designed to prioritize customer convenience.

Initially, customers generally browse through a variety of yachts available for charter; these vessels range from motor yachts to catamarans, each with unique features and amenities.

Once a suitable yacht has been selected, a booking request is made; often, this entails providing details such as the desired charter duration and the number of guests.

Upon approval of the reservation request, a charter agreement is typically drawn up, detailing terms and conditions, including the charter fee, cancellation policy, and any additional services requested.

Payment processes vary among companies, but most commonly, a deposit is required upfront, with the balance due closer to the charter date; payments are typically made via bank transfer or credit card.

It's indispensable to review and understand all aspects of the agreement; ensuring a smooth sailing experience.

Remember, comparing different yacht charter companies and their booking and payment methods can be beneficial in making an informed decision.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“ Terms ”) CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS AS WELL AS A SECTION GOVERNING THE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF DISPUTES. THESE TERMS ALSO CONTAIN A LEGALLY BINDING RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK. By creating a username, a login, clicking submit, using the services of Charter Experts, LLC d/b/a Virgin Island Sailing® (“ Broker ) or by accessing Broker’s website, you agree that you have read, and acknowledge your acceptance of these Terms. The Terms are subject to change at any time without notice at Broker’s sole discretion. Additionally, any transaction for which you have made payment shall be governed by the form of Terms in effect at the time of such payment notwithstanding any subsequent changes hereto.

If you are obtaining a quote, information, booking travel for and/or securing or procuring a Charter (as that term is defined in Section 1 below) for more than just yourself, all references below to “Charterer” or “you” (and derivations thereof) shall be read to mean you on behalf of yourself and each individual within your group for whom you are obtaining a quote, information, booking travel for and/or securing or procuring Charter.

These Terms shall be read together and construed, to the fullest extent possible, to be in concert with any other agreement by or among Broker and Charterer. To the extent they cannot be so construed, then in the event of any direct conflict between these Terms and any other agreement by or among Broker and Charterer (including but not limited to the agreement executed by Charterer for a Charter Reservation (as that term is defined in Section 1 below), these Terms shall prevail.

  • Prepaid Charter Reservations . Typically, Broker negotiates charter rates in advance with the yacht owner or charter company (“ Charter Provider ”) to obtain cost-effective rates, and facilitate reservations and availability for yacht charters, excursions and travel (the “ Charter ”). Broker also provides services to you by facilitating the booking of reservations for consideration and receives a commission from the Charter Provider (the “ Broker Fee ”). The Broker Fee is included in the pre-negotiated Charter rate provided to you, plus taxes and other fees where applicable. You agree that your payment is for the total amount set forth in the applicable Charter agreement (which Charter Provider may refer to as a Charter Contract, Charter Agreement, Booking Terms & Conditions, Instructions and Terms for Accommodations, as well as other derivations) provided to you by Broker (“ Charter Agreement ”). Upon execution of the Charter Agreement and receipt of the applicable deposit, you will have made a reservation for the Charter that authorizes Broker to facilitate the Charter on your behalf (“Charter Reservation”), including making payment arrangements with the Charter Provider. You further agree that Broker is a third-party beneficiary to the Charter Agreement and shall have the right to enforce such agreement to the extent it deems such enforcement necessary or advisable to protect its rights hereunder or under the Charter Agreement.

  Broker retains the Broker Fee as compensation in arranging your Charter Reservation. The Broker Fee varies based on the amount and type of Charter and/or services provided by Broker.  By making a Charter Reservation, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of the Charter Provider set forth in the Charter Agreement. Cancellation and no-show policies vary for each Charter. Carefully read the Charter Agreement and additional information provided to you by Broker. It is expressly agreed by Charterer that the Broker Fee is earned at the time the Charter Reservation is made. Late payment, wrong credit card or debit card details, invalid credit or debit cards, or insufficient funds are for your own risk and account, and you will not be entitled to any refund of any prepaid amount unless the Charter Provider expressly agrees otherwise under the Charter Agreement or in some other signed writing.

  • Charter Rules and Restrictions . Additional terms and agreements will apply to your Charter Reservation and any purchase or rental of equipment or other items, supplies, provisions and travel you may select. Please read those additional terms carefully. In particular, if you have purchased airfare, please ensure that you read the full terms and conditions of carriage issued by the supplier. You agree to abide by the terms of purchase imposed by any supplier with whom you elect to deal, including but not limited to payment of all amounts when due and compliance with the supplier’s rules and restrictions regarding availability, charges, fares, and use of products and services.
  • Payment . All payments must be made by personal check, bank/wire transfer, ACH payment and/or with a major credit card unless otherwise expressly stated. The total price for the Charter Reservation will be billed in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise stated. Some banks and credit card companies impose fees for international transactions. If you are making a reservation from outside of the United States on a US credit card, your bank may convert the payment amount to your local currency and charge you a conversion fee. This means the amount listed on your credit or bank card statement may be in your local currency and therefore a different figure than the amount provided by Broker for the Charter Reservation. In addition, a foreign transaction fee may be assessed if the financial institution that issued your credit card is located outside of the United States. Booking international travel may be considered to be an international transaction by the financial institution or card company. The currency exchange rate and foreign transaction fee is determined solely by your financial institution on the day that it processes the transaction. If you have any questions about these fees or the exchange rate applied to your booking, please contact your financial institution. Broker shall not be liable to you for any such service, conversion, or exchange fee.

  Broker expressly reserves the right to cancel your Charter Reservation if full payment is not timely received as set forth in the Charter Agreement.

  • Cancellation and Rescheduling . You may cancel or change your Charter Reservation as set forth in the Charter Agreement by and among you, the Charter Provider and/or Broker. Please note that some Charter Providers do not permit changes to or cancellation of reservations after they are made, or after a certain date, as indicated in the Charter Agreement. You agree to abide by the terms of the Charter Agreement with respect to your Charter Reservation. Broker will not be responsible for reimbursing Charterer for any previously tendered deposits or payments by Charterer and disclaims all liability for the failure of a Charter Provider to refund or return any such funds.
  • Credit Card Transactions and Chargebacks . If for any reason, any Charter Provider is unable to provide the Charter, or any part thereof, for which you have contracted, your remedy lies against the Charter Provider, and not against Broker. However, Broker will use reasonable efforts to assist you and Charter Provider in reaching a resolution to a dispute between you and the Charter Provider. In the event that your payment has already been transferred from Broker to Charter Provider or to an escrow account, you agree that you will not seek a chargeback against Broker for such amounts transferred. You further agree to indemnify and hold Broker harmless from and against any liability, loss, damage or expense (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) that Broker may incur in connection with chargebacks against Broker or under the Charter Agreement and your performance thereunder. If Broker incurs any costs, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, to recover any payments charged back by your credit card company or other financial institution, you agree that you will be liable for these costs. If your payment is declined for any reason, you agree to settle any amounts owed to Broker via money order, cashier’s check, personal check or bank/ACH transfer immediately.
  • Broker Responsibility . Broker makes arrangements with the Charter Provider. Broker additionally makes additional arrangements with other suppliers for the various components and other services that comprise your Charter (“Charter Suppliers”). Broker is not an agent of these Charter Providers or the Charter Suppliers (and the Charter Providers and Charter Suppliers are not agents of Broker). Broker expressly disclaims any liability for the actions or omissions of the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers. The Charter Providers and the Charter Suppliers reserve the right to refuse service to you at their sole discretion. Broker assumes no liability for the acts of the Charter Provider or the Charter Suppliers in refusing service. Broker is not responsible for schedule changes and does not offer compensation for those changes. Broker is not responsible under any circumstances for any injury or damages you may suffer, in connection with sea, air or ground transportation, hotel accommodations, or other travel or excursion services arranged by Broker.

  You understand Broker is not the source or supplier of the Charter or other travel services you requested and acts solely as a broker for the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers. You agree that the Charter Provider and Charter Suppliers whose names appear in the information supplied to you are those who are solely responsible for providing the Charter you purchase. You consent to and request the use of the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers and agree to not hold Broker responsible should any of them: (i) fail to provide the Charter or travel services you purchased, whether or not such services are listed in the Charter Agreement or otherwise, (ii) fail to comply with any applicable law, or (iii) engage in any negligent act or omission that causes you any sort of injury, damage, delay or inconvenience.

By using Broker’s services, you waive and release any claim against Broker, its affiliated and subsidiary companies, and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, and agents, arising out of or in connection with any loss of or damage to property or injury to any person caused by reason of (i) any defect, negligence, or other wrongful act or omission, or any failure of performance of any kind, by any Charter Provider, Charter Suppliers, or any other provider of sea, airline, hotel, ground transportation or any other travel provider connected to or otherwise associated with the Charter, (ii) any claim for inconvenience, loss of enjoyment, mental distress or other similar claim, (iii) any delayed departure, missed connection, substitute accommodation, termination of service or change in fares or rates, and (iv) overbooking, flight or other travel cancellation, lost or misconnected personal property, or any claim arising out of the air transportation portion of your travel, and (v) or any other claim arising out of or otherwise related to the Charter Agreement or services provided by the Charter Provider and the Charter Suppliers.

Excepting only liability that directly arises from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Broker, you will not hold Broker responsible for any injury, damage or loss you may suffer while on a Charter, whether incurred on the Charter or in connection with any other rental, purchase, excursion or activity, regardless of the relationship of any of the foregoing with the Charter Provider or the Charter Suppliers.

  • Your Responsibility . By booking a Charter with Broker, you agree to defend and indemnify and hold harmless Broker, Charter Provider, Charter Suppliers, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, causes of action, demands, recoveries, losses, damages, fines, penalties or other costs or expenses of any kind or nature, including but not limited to reasonable legal fees, arising out of or in connection with: (i) your breach of these Terms or the documents referenced herein; (ii) your violation of any law or rights of a third party; or (iii) your use of the Broker website.

You will review your Charter Agreement and travel documents for accuracy upon receipt. You understand that it is your responsibility to review the accuracy of all details in the Charter Reservation provided to you, and that you may contact Broker if you have any questions.

You assume full and complete responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination, or other entry requirements of your destination(s), and all conditions regarding health, safety, security, political stability, and labor or civil unrest at such destination(s).

You understand that Broker recommends purchasing travel insurance to cover certain risks inherent in travel such as supplier bankruptcy and the inability to travel due to a medical or personal emergency.

  • No Warranties . All Charters, products, services, advice and information is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied to the fullest extent permitted under the law, including but not limited to, warranties of title or implied warranties of merchantability, satisfactory quality or fitness for a particular purpose. Without limiting the above, no warranty or guarantee is made (i) regarding the acceptance of any reservation request or Charter Reservation; (ii) regarding the availability of Charters, or any other product and/or services through Broker; (iii) that the use of Broker’s website will be error-free; or (iv) regarding the completeness, accuracy, reliability or quality of any information, content, data, service, advice or merchandise provided by Broker or through Broker’s website.

Broker has no special knowledge regarding the Charter Provider’s or Charter Supplier’s financial condition, unsafe conditions, health hazards, weather hazards, or climate extremes at locations to which you may travel during or otherwise in connection with your Charter.

  • Limitation on Liability . In no event shall Broker, Charter Provider, Charter Suppliers, and/or their respective affiliates, or any employees, agents, officers, directors, members or managers of any of the foregoing (“Broker and Charter Releasees”), be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of, or in any way connected with, your access to, display of or use the Broker’s website, the Charter or services provided to you in connection with the Charter (including, but not limited to, your reliance upon opinions of the Broker), whether based on a theory of negligence, contract, tort, strict liability, consumer protection statutes, or otherwise, and even if Broker and/or any other of the Broker and Charter Releasees have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

If, despite the limitation above, Broker or the Broker and Charter Releasees are found liable for any loss or damage which arises out of or in any way connected with any of the occurrences described above, then Broker, Charter Provider, Charter Supplier and the Broker and Charter Releasees will in no event exceed, in the aggregate, the greater of (a) the Broker Fee, and (b) One-Hundred Dollars (US $100.00).

The foregoing limitation of liability reflects the allocation of risk between the parties. The limitations specified in this section will survive and apply even if any limited remedy specified in these Terms is found to have failed of its essential purpose. The limitations of liability provided in these Terms inure to the benefit of Broker and/or its providers.

The foregoing does not affect any liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.

  • Limitation on Time to File Claims . ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF RELATING TO BROKER’S SERVICES OR THE WEBSITE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES, OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
  • Waiver . No waiver by Broker of any term or condition set forth in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of the Broker to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
  • Severability . If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.
  • Governing Law and Mandatory Venue . The laws of the State of Florida govern the rights and obligations of the parties to this Agreement and the interpretation, construction and enforceability thereof. You agree that any action or proceeding initiated by Charterer against Broker shall be brought solely in the federal and state courts of Hillsborough County, Florida, and you submit to the jurisdiction of those courts and waive any objections to the exercise of personal jurisdiction over you by those courts. In the event any action or proceeding is initiated by Charterer in a court outside of Hillsborough County, Florida, Charterer agrees to pay Broker’s costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees associated with defending such action or proceeding and waives any and all defenses to the transfer of said action or proceeding, whether jurisdictional or otherwise, to a federal or state court in Hillsborough County, Florida.

Home to more than 5,000 kilometres of sun-kissed Adriatic coastline, Croatia is one of the world’s most idyllic yacht charter destinations.

With its wealth of islands, ports, harbours and bays, not to mention beautiful cities such as Zadar and Split, Croatia has burgeoned in popularity in recent years, as word has spread over its majestic natural scenery, mouth-watering food and affordable prices compared with many of its western European counterparts.

The country’s key yachting areas are concentrated around the Dalmatian Islands to the south and Kornati Islands to the north, but wherever you chose to embark on your boating adventure you’ll be richly rewarded. For those considering a luxury yacht charter in Croatia, we’ve done some research and picked out three of the best companies where you can rent a yacht.

Established in 2012, Ritzy Charters is a highly regarded agency for arranging private yacht rental charters across the world. The company offers nearly 150 crewed motor yacht, catamaran rentals and options for a sailing charter in Croatia, as well as a number of those very pinnacles of luxury yacht experiences – super yacht charters, including an incredible 295-foot vessel. During our search, rates started at €9,800 per week for a 57-foot catamaran that sleeps up to six guests. The booking process is simple with Ritzy – all you do is fill in a query form with some necessary details, including number of guests, travel dates, itinerary and special requests, then you ask for a quote and wait for the company to send back a list of available yachts for your dates and criteria.

This vessel, as with all of Skipper City’s charters, can be booked either as a bareback, crewed or skippered yacht, skippered yacht, depending on your preference.

6 Tips For Choosing The Best Yacht Charter Experience

C hartering a yacht is the ultimate in custom vacationing, a travel trend that gained traction during COVID and shows no signs of stopping. It offers travelers an opportunity to reach their dream destinations in comfort, style, and exclusivity. The best part: Very often, this bespoke experience can be cheaper than a cruise on a higher-end line you’d have to share with a lot of strangers!

Here are six tips for choosing the best yacht charter experience to suit your style, tastes, and holiday goals!

1. Work Within Your Budget

For most travelers, money is indeed an object, or at least a big consideration. A great charter company has a fleet of vessels at its fingertips, from smaller options such as a catamaran or sailing yacht all the way up to a super yacht with ultra amenities. Their team will work with you to assess your travel budget and offer appropriate options. Keep in mind: There’s all sorts of costs — such as fuel, docking fees, and other extras — that factor into a vacation like this. Some companies roll most of those items into a blanket price, others will calculate them separately or in an overage fee called an “advance provisioning allowance.”

Quick Example: Last year, I sailed on the super yacht Ohana in Croatia. It was part of the Goolets charter group based in Slovenia, which charges a flat weekly accommodation cost; an advance provisioning fee is assessed for food, beverages, and any other extras. The lovely ship slept up to 30 guests quite comfortably and all-in at high season (with APF included) was about $143,000 a week. Steep? Sure, at first glance. But broken down per person, the cost comes out to about $4,300 for each friend or family member. That’s food, drinks, excursions, everything. So, it turns out this kind of travel can indeed be budget-friendly and a good charter will work with you to maximize your money.

2. Location, Location, Location

When considering a private yacht vacation, location is everything. The good news is that charter companies operate all over the world, from the aforementioned Croatia to Australia, the Caribbean, Indonesia, and everywhere there’s sea in between.

If you’ve got a dream destination on your bucket list, a private yacht vacation will help get you there. Choose a charter company that has deep bench strength in the region you want to visit. They’ll have a wide range of yachts and corresponding itineraries for you to consider, ensuring the perfect experience for you and your party. Whether you crave the party scene of Greece, Italy, or the Riviera, or prefer something more far-flung and secluded such as the Seychelles or Maldives, a yacht charter experience will have you covered.

3. Consider Your Entire Party’s Needs

Another big perk of a great charter company: They will handle all the onboard logistics during your cruise, considering your entire party’s interests, must-dos, mobility levels, and even special occasions in an easy, effortless manner. They will interview you ahead of time to assess your interests, then craft an itinerary that suits everyone from start to finish. Keep in mind, they know the local area, plus have access to the best guides and onshore experiences. They will pull out all the stops to make sure everyone in your group has a terrific time.

Culture vultures to party animals will have the perfect vacation planned for them by the yacht charter. From city walking tours led by historians to exclusive access to the best clubs and other hotspots, the charter company and your yacht’s onboard staff are there to make sure it’s all picture-perfect. And if you feel like scrapping your schedule for the day and choosing to stay on the water? That’s just fine, too. The crew will roll with your wishes and honor them.

4. Food And Beverages = Big Deals On Board

No question about it, fabulous food and hand-crafted beverages are central to a terrific private yacht experience. Again, this is where that thorough pre-interview really comes into play. A charter company will consider not just preferences, but any allergies, dietary considerations, or religious restrictions to make sure the chef is prepped accordingly. Expect special snacks and other surprise touches to shine through as well; during my charter, a special birthday cake was procured and presented to a young guest after dinner on his big day.

While the yacht’s team will make sure your food tastes just as spectacular as it looks, they’ll also likely lean into the regional culinary scene with locally sourced fruits, vegetables, meats, and of course, seafood! Keep in mind your yacht’s stewards are responsible for keeping bar service running smoothly; by the second day, they knew which mid-afternoon cocktail I fancied (Croatian sparkling wine) and which wines I preferred at dinner. My glass was never empty, until I signaled I was done for the evening.

Bottom Line: Your culinary service should be seamless and impeccable during your time on board.

5. Don’t Forget The Water Toys

Water toys are a big part of a private yacht experience — you’re on the water after all and want to make sure you can get out there and enjoy it. Look for a vessel that has a robust fleet of options that align with your party’s fitness level and recreation (or adrenaline!) goals. Kayaks, rafts, and jet skis are all fairly standard; some yachts also include seabobs, massive water slides, and even inflatable water playgrounds to ensure multi-gen fun on the water. 

Pro Tip: Depending on the destination, divers will also want to inquire about scuba or snorkel equipment.

6. Find A “Your Wish Is Their Command” Crew

One of the best parts of a private yacht vacation is the bespoke service you’ll experience every step of the way; the goal is to make sure you want for nothing during your time on board. Craving a cucumber water while you’re lounging on deck? They’ll have it. Want to make sure there are snacks waiting for you after you return from kayaking? Of course! And want to take your dinner to another level? Crews take great pride in creating over-the-top table masterpieces and theme nights that will dazzle everyone in your party.

Of course, crews can and do accommodate more outrageous requests, but don’t be that Below Deck nightmare and ask them for something that’s illegal. It puts them in a terrible position where they could be held liable, and it’s just not cool.

Keep In Mind: A crew that provides excellent service deserves excellent recognition. Be kind and make sure you factor an appropriate tip into your budget. It’s very often not included in the price of the charter or advance provisioning fee.
